Reminder – Rates rebates for 2020/2021

To be eligible for the full rebate your income must be $26,150 or less, but you can still receive a pro-rata rebate if your income is higher.
You must be the ratepayer on our records AND reside at the address for which you wish to apply for a rebate as at 1 July 2020. Rebates are intended for residential properties only. Retirement village occupants with a licence to occupy and Māori Freehold Landowners with a separate rating unit can now apply.
Council needs to know your total income before tax for the year 1 April 2019– 31 March 2020 to process a rates rebate application.
Please visit the DIA website for further information on what the requirements are and how to apply. Our Rates Officer is happy to assist with these applications.
